We came across FORS when tendering for work across London. When we looked at the requirements and benefits of joining the scheme we saw that they fitted in perfectly with our ethos of improving safety whilst complementing our drive to improve fuel efficiency and reduce our environmental impact
We were inspired by Erith Ltd who are one of our clients and wanted to show that we also take complaince and safety very seroiusly, so we achieved our Bronze and Silver Accreditation first time. FORS did help us by providing training and tools that improved our policies and procedures
The performance management toolkit really helped us set our targets for reducing our carbon footprint and accidents while improving our MPG. FORS has helped us improve our filing systems and procedures
‘FORS has helped us achieve compliance and safety’
The biggest benefit of joining FORS, is allowing us to keep our contract with Erith Ltd and S Walsh & Son, as they are our biggest contracts. Also in the Past 12 months the company has noticed a vast improvement in fuel and tyre wear since we have had our FORS accreditation, “The savings speak for its self”
‘We have increased our MPG by 5.83% in the last 12 months’
We have saved money on our total Fuel Spend and kept our PCN’s to zero by making sure our driver selects the best possible route to our sites.
